Because children with disabilities are at a greater risk of being neglected and abused, UCP of Mobile, in collaboration with Children’s Trust Fund of Alabama, offers Project Aware, a multi-faceted parent education program. The project aims to teach mothers and fathers of young children how to cope with the pressures of parenthood.
Through parent education meetings, periodic newsletters, home visits, and resource material available at UCP’s Lending Library, participants learn:
• Available community services
• Child development
• Effective responses to child behaviors and stressful situations
• Anger Management Skills
• Family Nights, support meetings, and home visits, available through Project Aware, help families to develop and maintain support systems with other families in similar situations.
Meetings are open to the public, and mailings will be sent to anyone who requests them.
For more information about Project Aware, please call 251-479-4900, ext 531 or email Matrisza Alvarez.
